But I can hit the beach with Essence Cosmetics without every having to deal with the ick factors of a real beach with their new Surfer Babe Collection!

Avon Sunset Glow Bronzer Review, Swatches, and Photos

Some folks take makeup WAY to seriously. Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing but me I can’t even take life seriously never mind makeup. Which is why cute and fun makeup really appeals to me. I find the joy in makeup that some folk would possibly write off and not take too seriously.

Although a tad unconventional for the best bronzer application, I have to say, the joy and fun of the new Avon Sunset Glow Bronzer just makes me want to smile and sit on a beach somewhere.

These are SO sweet.



L’Oreal HIP Colour Truth Eyeliner Pencil Review and Swatches

L’Oreal is slowly fading out some of the HIP line and replacing it with what it deems the Studio Secrets Professional Collection. Many of the older HIP pieces you know and love may be gone and replaced with new items featuring the Studio Secrets label. Now this doesn’t mean HIP is gone but it just appears L’Oreal is trying to mass market the HIP line and make it more appealing to a universal consumer rather than a younger crowd.

You may remember that one of the first potted gel liners available from the HIP Collection were the Colour Truth ones. Recently, I started seeing alot less of these on drugstore shelves and most recently seen the new L’Oreal HIP Colour Truth Eyeliner Pencils. I do wonder if the gel liners will be replaced by these new pencils at a future date?

Either way if you aren’t a gel liner fan and prefer pencils, these may appeal.

I do suggest snagging them prior to Sunday at Walgreens if possible as they are Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off (Wish I got this deal grrrr I paid $8.99 each at Harmons). Might as well save money on your lemmings right?
